Not me, the GPU is doing all the work. I might tinker with the SMP client this evening and see if I can get it doing something useful too.

Waaaaay back in the mists of time (when a 400MHz Pentium II was cutting-edge!) I was part of a team doing something similar to crack RC5 encryption. No GPU cleints back then - it was all done on single-core CPUs, apart from a few guys who co-opted SMP servers at their work for illicit overnight runs.
